  • Lady Lions end season as regional runners-up
    In one of the more unique games played for most likely both the Fairfield Lady Lions and the Strasburg-Franklin Lady Tigers, the Division IV Regional Final game between the two state-ranked teams had a combined 20 runs, a total of 79 plate appearances, three home runs, five strikeouts between two pitchers and even a delay in the game due to the health of an umpire, but only one team could advance to the State Final Four.
  • Hard work leads to educational success for mother, sons

  • From Sleepy Creek, to Rocky Fork (twice!) Part II
    Sunday, May 29, 2016 10:05 AM
    The group finally arrived in Highland County that fall. They settled near headwaters of Rocky Fork Creek in New Market and Liberty Townships where other friends and family members from Virginia had already settled. The county had gotten its name, Highland, because it was the high ground between the Scioto and Little Miami Rivers and the county then had only four townships, namely, New Market, Brush Creek, Fairfield and Liberty.

  • Make government accountable
    Sunday, May 29, 2016 9:23 AM
    Under today's status quo, the American people are out of luck. They cannot hold the EPA administrator or the secretary of education accountable for bad regulations. One vote every four years for one person is not enough. We need a better way to make the federal government accountable to the American people.

  • Remembering what they sacrificed – and why
    Sunday, May 29, 2016 9:09 AM
    We still live in a dangerous world. And just as the men and women who served this country throughout our history have made our freedom possible, our future will depend upon each new generation continuing to step forward and serve. We have never had freedom without bravery and we never will. That is worth remembering every day.
